Grand Prize is up to $300.00

Hello all,

Guess what?? Catch up week is here!!! There won’t be another so get caught up now!!

** Now is the time to get caught if you plan too! **

 

I am sure ya’ll have seen the tally page and are going OMG there is no way I can catch up now!!

Well your wrong, this is the week you can do just that!!

 

But you’ll have to be quick and watch the sweeps site everyday this week as I have some catch up ideas going through my head, and you’ll have to be at the site daily in order not to miss anything!!

This week I will be changing the bonuses daily! For example Monday I may x5 a box of mac and cheese and them take it away on Tuesday, and then x7 it on Friday. You just never know!

So you see you will have to watch the site daily!!

 

You have to mail your items no later than next Saturday (there will be NO bonuses on Saturday so you can mail without worrying they changed) in order to claim this weeks bonuses, now on you tally you will need to claim all the bonuses for each item in order to be able to get caught up. So here is an example:

1 Box Mac & Cheese 100 x5 Monday bonus = 500 x 6 Friday bonus = 3000 and so on.

You can use your email bonuses on anything it applies to along with daily bonuses.

I may even x?? an entire page and you can use those bonuses along with any others.

Be sure to check each page to claim all points that are available to you along with each pages bonuses.  Who knows you may find that a 1000 pt items is worth 1,000,000 pts or more using all the bonuses.  So be sure to watch the site Daily!!!

 

Your Letter of the week is B & P (yes 2 letters this week)

Your color of the week is Brown & blue (Yup 2 colors also this week)

Color = x4

Letter = x5

Both = x20

 

Don’t forget we are working on The Christmas part of the sweeps now and you can win
The person that sends the Most Christmas and Wish list items
Dinner for 2 @ Logan's Roadhouse & Free Movie Rental
Dinner includes, your choice or Appetizer, Entree, and Drink 
(No Price Limit! Eat what you want!)

At the end of the sweeps if you have the most!!

 

All Boxes can be doubled this week by including 5.00 then you can throw in a required item and double it again. You can do this on ebay and internet items also (must mail your doubler/doublers within 48 hours and let me know you are sending it)

 

(note: You can mail your items anytime during the week and I can update your tally if you have sent items that the bonuses change if you don’t want to wait till Saturday to mail)

 

Now how is that for catch up week??

 

The first box I receive that is mailed this week will be tripled and the second will be doubled. (if more than one box received the same day I will give the tripler to the box I am handed first by the mailman.
